GOD IS WORKING HIS PURPOSE OUT

GOD IS WORKING HIS PURPOSE OUT

  1. GOD is working his purpose out as year succeeds to year,

God is working his purpose out and the time is drawing near;

Nearer and nearer draws the time, the time that shall surely be,

When the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the

waters cover the sea.

  1. From utmost east to utmost west where’re man’s foot hath trod,

By the mouth of many messengers goes forth the voice of God,

‘Give ear to me, ye continents, ye isles, give ear to me,

That the earth may be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea.’

  1. What can we do to work God’s work, to prosper and increase?

The brotherhood of all mankind, the reign of the Prince of Peace?

What can we do to hasten the time, the time that shall surely be,

When the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea?

  1. March we forth in the strength of God with the banner of Christ unfurled,

That the light of the glorious Gospel of truth may shine throughout the world.

Fight we the fight with sorrow and sin, to set their captives free,

That the earth may be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea.

  1. All we can do is nothing worth unless God blesses the deed;

Vainly we hope for the harvest-tide till God gives life to the seed;

Yet nearer and nearer draws the time, the time that shall surely be,

When the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea.
